"Another strategy aimed at preventing identity theft is AARP’s Fraud Watch Network, a free service that provides information on scams, provides a scam-tracking map and offers preventive tips.

There is a grandparent scam that is going around where the perpetrator pretends to be a grandson or granddaughter and is asking for money,' he said." -Brandon Gonzalez
